Nate and Brea’s backyard wedding in Olympia was spectacular. There is no other way to describe it than that. Both Erika and I absolutely loved working both Nate and Brea. They are wonderful people and it made the day even better.
I really love the dresses from this wedding. They all complimented each other so well, but was so beautifully individualistic.
Early on the wedding morning, the gentlemen headed off for a round of golf at the Tumwater Valley Golf Course. Nate and his father joined forces to compete against Brea’s brother and father. Thanks only to a last ditch shot over a tree followed by a clutch put, the groo pulled off the victory.
Over at Brea’s grandma’s house, the girls were toasting with mimosas and celebrating Brea. The house is beautifully situated on the Puget Sound, which was the perfect back drop to a great day.
When it came time for the first look, both Brea and Nate were nervous in the cutest way. Brea was peaking out from the family garage, admiring her man getting situated and when they finally saw each other, their moment was so joyous, they had to go play corn hole.
The wedding venue just happened to be next to an awesome, empty field with a deserted barn. Luck, planning or serendipity?
Not a bad looking group, eh?
Live music always adds to a great day.
I’m going to be honest, I teared up during the ceremony. The officiants beautifully wove together their faith, history and future in their homilies, but the radiant smiles lifted everyone’s heart.
The pizza was awesome. If you’re in Olympia, check out Ricardo’s Wood Fired Express
The weather cooperated quite well. It was the perfect balance of sun, heat, and sunset.
Then, the dance party began, and everyone brought down the house.
Did I mention that there was a pool. Once groomsman was quoted saying “I will never have another dance party without a pool.” I’d agree.
